Hi all!


Since there still isn't a specific thread about it, I've created this one to say that I've found very interesting the new course by Zachary Humway, expecially when it comes to the final chapters about rendering and post-production. Some very good advices for a hobbiest like me!


Thank you!

Larsen


P.S. : sorry if I've posted in the wrong section of the forum.

I've gotta say, just like the illustration course Daybe did, I really like the courses that take a project from conception to completion.


Good job Digitaldali. Was rather interesting to see how focusing on the idea to be conveyed allowed the creation of impressive image result from such a concise scene. Are you planning to do any more and maybe make this into a series?


-Jack.

Honestly, I hadn't really planned on doing more. I probably would if Tom asked me to...I'll admit it was pretty fun. Right now I'm making up for lost time producing art again. If I did another tutorial, I'd like to go into some more advanced techniques, both in production and post production.


This attached image is a good example of advanced NURBS modeling, texturing and post-render processing. It's called "Rising Rage.":) I had to resize to a less "letter-box" aspect ratio...mea culpa


Enjoy!

I'd be interested in hearing more about Stinky Pete's Crooked Shack... It took me a minute to catch what you were say each time you mentioned it. :D


Great course!

:))I have no idea, just made it up. I always loved the crooked houses at theme parks, though. No sure what that says about me:|

I really don't think you'll have any problems...is there mirrormodeling in TS 6.6? I can't remember:|Anyway, I don't think you'll have any problems anyway...the mirrormodeling is all I can think of. Oh yeah, there's some Photoshop stuff too. Do you have photoshop?

Nice to see someone else is using Xara, such a great program.

Sweet, I'll have to check it out:)I think it'll handle what I do...mostly hand-painting techniques in photoshop. I use specific blending modes on each layer (Overlay, Soft Light, Multiply and Screen). As long as it gives you those options, you shouldn't have any problems. For that matter, perhaps Xara will have better options, I'd just experiment some and see what you can do as far as matte painting in Xara.


Okay, I'm going to go check that program out now:D

Well, seeing how you are going to check it out, you probably have noticed it's a 2d vector program similar to illustrator (but far better in my opinion) so for digital painting it may not be what you are looking for but if you use illustrator you will find this much better and for 1/4 of the price.

I just picked this course up in the 5 for $99 deal and I am enjoying it. Really great to watch other Artist techniques and to learn from it. Nice work and I highly recommend it to others.
p.s.
I kept thinking I was listening to Charles Kuralt when you ended each chapter:D
